I don't suppose it would be possible to do this job remotely from Brisbane? The position sounds good, but the commute is a bit long. :)

Is this the same position they advertised a couple of weeks back? didn't it close? Are they looking for additional people now or is this a misprinting of the original position (the one thats closed)???

Remotely? No, this is an onsite role, we would however consider assisting with relocation.

Deja vu? Yes, this role was advertised a few months back, but this is a new position.

Is this role still open? Can't imagine it took long to find someone given the current situations around Australia.

It's still listed on their website, has anyone who applied heard back?

Many studios (and businesses in general) are all doing the Christmas wrap drinks and closing up for the year this week. I'd say that if Blue Tongue hasn’t contacted you yet, they probably wouldn’t do until early January when they all return to work.

We have filled this and everyone should have got a response.

Any questions let me know.

Thanks,
